At MAK10 LTD T/A Discount Store, (“us”, and “we,”) we value our Clients, their information, privacy and trust. This Policy explains how we collect, use and protect your information through www.70ds.co.uk (the “Website”). Specifically, this Policy applies to Discount Store’s collection, use, storage, and transfer of information associated with our Website. If there is something you do not understand about our privacy practices, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
Throughout this Policy, we refer to the term “Personal Information”. “Personal Information” is data about an individual who can be identified from that data, or by combining it with other data. Personal Information is usually your name in combination with another identifier, such as date of birth, postal address, email address, telephone number, or government-issued identification number. The specific definition of Personal Information varies from one jurisdiction to another.
Personal Information does not include anonymous or aggregated data that can no longer be used to identify a specific person, even if combined with other data.

When you contact us via the company email address, we will collect your email address and any information you include in your email to similarly address your concerns.

We use this information to confirm your registration initially and to confirm your identity when you later log in to your account. We also use this information to confirm your registration, respond to Client service requests, administer your account, improve the operation of our application, improve the operation of our Website, conduct research and analysis of how our Clients use our Website, and assess which of our products and services may be of interest to you. We will keep this information for as long as you have an account with us to allow us to verify your identity and to provide you with the account information you request. In addition, we may retain Personal Information from closed accounts to comply with national laws, prevent fraud, collect any moneys owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigation, enforce our Terms & Conditions or contractual rights, and take other reasonable actions permitted or required by applicable law.

Other Information We Collect
In addition to the information collected directly from you, we also automatically gather information when you browse or view our Website. For the Website, this information may include Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit Website and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, clickstream data, and other information related to your visit.
We use this browsing information to make sure that the Website is functioning properly, that the Website is displayed properly for your equipment and software, and that we can provide you with information useful to your location.
There are “do not track” or similar browser choices available to internet users with respect to online web activity, but given the present lack of consensus of what constitutes an informed election, appropriate trigger or breadth of scope of such choice, our Website will not operate any differently when a “do not track” signal is received.
In some of our email messages, you will find a “click-through URL” linked to content on our Website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our Client communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click such links in our email messages.
USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use your Personal Information to further legitimate business interests – to transact business with you and serve you as a Client. As described above, we use your Personal Information to enable you to participate in online transactions, confirm your registration with the Website, send you requested information, administer your account, personalise content so that it applies to you and your interests, compile, analyse, and do research on our user’s demographics and behavior, and detect, investigate, and prevent activities that may violate our policies or be illegal. We may also use your Personal Information to communicate with you about products and services we believe you might find of interest and to administer promotions, surveys, contests and sweepstakes in which you might participate.
We also use the information automatically collected about you to improve the effectiveness of our Website, operations, or marketing efforts or as described elsewhere in this policy, to prevent against fraud and theft, and otherwise to protect our Website’ visitors and our business.

USE OF TECHNOLOGY
We use technologies such as “cookies” so we can remember certain information about you, remember your preferences or recognise you when you return.
